Digital Resources

Libraries may have closed for the time being, but this doesn't mean you can't still enjoy the love of reading or learn a new skill or two. While many of you are at home with children, organisations and individuals have stepped up and are offering storytelling, drawing masterclasses and online learning to keep children occupied and entertained so that maybe you have some time to dip into our elibrary!

The e-library service offering ebooks, audiobooks, e-magazines and e-comics all completely FREE and you can join us right now!

Our very own Sheffield Year of Reading Writer in Residence, author Nik Perring, has taken his brilliant teaching online, and has provided two brilliant online courses along with our Love Sheffield, luv writing competition for all ages.

For anyone on Twitter follow #UnitedbyBooks (a collaboration from Scottish BookTrust, Authorfy and Beanstalk Reads)  who are providing lots of exciting and up-to-date resources and check back here as we'll be updating this list regularly.
